I have been involved in the utilization of Virtualization Technology in developing an online laboratory system for ICT courses. On this project, I published a number of papers in IEEE sponsored international conferences and journals. In later stage of my research path, I worked on the design of a system to distribute educational materials during critical situations when the Learning Management System is not available. The distribution system is hosted in the Cloud and makes use of the services available in it.
I have always enjoyed learning new technologies and tried to use them in the most effective way to address practical issues and problems. I consider technology as a tool to use rather than a goal to work towards. But we are required to develop new technologies from time to time because we can’t always find the one that fits our needs.
Problems in all fields are out there, and our mission as IT professionals is to introduce technical solutions to these problems, test our solutions, and improve them.
I encourage you to take every opportunity to learn a new technology and find new ways of adopting it to solve all kinds of issues that interest you.
